The Clearance Box serves several purposes:

  1. The 3D clearance Box assists with the design-construction BIM clash-interference detection and coordination.

  2. It helps the designer to visually design the space, with adequate installation and maintenance clearances around for this equipment.

The Keltech electric supply connector is located in the back of the unit and is "field drilled" at the time of installation.

Two parameters are installed in the Keltech Revit family models, to assist Construction VDC Managers; that are creating the facility as-built models.

  1. Electrical Connector Top Inset

  2. Electrical Connector Right Inset

These two parameters locate the final position of the field-drilled electrical connection hole on the back of the unit.

Keltech Field Drilled Electrical Connector Parameters

The position and sizing of a Keltech water heater model, is derived from the Top of the Heater; which serves as the datum for most of the dimensional parameters.
